Electricity black out affects Mutharika radio program listening: I love Zokonda Amai on MBC

President Peter Mutharika has said a morning electricity black out on Wednesday at Kamuzu Palace in Lilongwe disturbed him as he was listening to a program he loves most on state controlled, Malawi Broadcasting Corporation.

Mutharika: I love listening to Zokonda AMai

Mutharika said this in Lilongwe as he officially launched the Tree Planting Season.

“We suffer the same when electricity goes off. As I was listening to my favourite program, Zokonda Amayi, there were interruptions between 8:30 am to 9 am,” said Mutharika.

He attributed the power blackouts to tree cuttings which led to water low levels in Shire River and affected power generation.

The President therefore asked Malawians to plant more trees this year and ensure the trees have a 100 per cent survival rate.

Trees planted during the season have a 60 per cent survival rate, according to officials from Forestry Department.

First Lady Gertrude Mutharika was not at the tree planting function but on January 1 she participated in the Zokonda Amayi program and told Malawians that President Mutharika loves the program.

But Malawians how docile are you to be ruled by someone a man who loves ZOKONDA AMAI. Is he a mai himself. His solution of developing power is also so narrow minded. There is more to stopping the power black outs than just planting trees. I do not have to him what he should know as president or he should resign. Surely he should stop listening to radio during working hours and do more work and research on how the power situation can be improved than a whole president complaining which is also not true and an insult to the… Read more »

If only the President could stop wasting time listening to Zokonda Getrude ( which we all know what it is) , perhaps the country’s woes would lessen as he would dedicate his time to the things he was elected to do. Not listening to the radio during working hours…chamba eti?
